We will see a clear start to the day on the Western Slope. Clear skies will stick around through the morning, but partly cloudy skies will move in over most of the Western Slope this afternoon. We will get cut off from the moist southwesterly flow today causing rain chances to decrease significantly. With the drier weather today highs will climb to the 90s for the Grand Valley this afternoon. We will still have enough lingering moisture for a few pop up mountain thunderstorms near the Divide, but the lower valleys will stay dry today. Southwesterly monsoon winds will return for Thursday afternoon causing chances for scattered showers to bounce back. Thursday will still be mostly dry for the valleys, but we will see a 50% chance for afternoon storms on Friday across the region. The heaviest rain looks to fall over the weekend, and with the higher rain chances for Friday, Saturday and Sunday highs will drop to the 80s for the end of the week. We will slowly begin to dry out as we move through next week.
